In pictures: Gardiner Houlgate’s March 2019 guitar auction

13-14 March sale includes gear owned by Johnny Marr, Mott The Hoople and more.

Gardiner Houlgate’s latest guitar auction features another incredible array of vintage and secondhand guitars. We recently demoed the incredible National Duolian owned by delta-blues pioneer Bukka White, but there are plenty of other guitars and amps to shout about, including a Fender Bandmaster used by Johnny Marr in The Smiths.

To whet your appetite even further, below is a gallery featuring some of our favourite picks from this months collection, including guitars belonging to Pete Overend Watts of Mott The Hoople fame and a selection of gear owned by Huw Lloyd-Langton of Hawkwind .
